Nissan publishes an annual Sustainability Report as a way of sharing information on its sustainability-related activities with stakeholders. This year’s report introduces Nissan’s sustainability strategy and management based on Nissan Sustainability 2022, the sustainability strategy adopted in June 2018, and reviews the results achieved in fiscal 2018 in terms of three aspects (important sustainability topics): Environmental, Social and Governance, or “E,” “S” and “G” for short.
Report themes (important sustainability topics) are selected on the basis of potential impact on our business activities and level of interest from stakeholders. Potential impact on our business activities is evaluated with reference to previously recognized issues as well as CSR guidelines and trends and global current events inside and outside the automobile industry. Stakeholder interest is evaluated based on interviews conducted as necessary with both internal and external stakeholders and analyses provided by external consultants.
